On Wednesday, February 17, 2021, CMCC hosted our first virtual Practice OpportUnity Day. We were astounded to welcome 663 participants, including 500 attendees!
We were very pleased with the successful turnout and number of job applications that were facilitated – 178 jobs were applied for via the online “apply now” function at the virtual booths.
We welcomed 54 chiropractors from across Canada and two international attendees from the US and Carribean. All together, we had 12 vendors, eight associations and six sponsors.
Our title sponsor, the Ontario Chiropractic Association (OCA), brought us the Practice Realities Panel, in which established chiropractors Drs. Nardine Bekhit, Angelica Mazzella and Patrick Welsh described their experiences starting out. Moderated by Dr. Moez Rajwani.
Following the OCA webinar was our Keynote Address webinar sponsored by the Canadian Chiropractic Association and presented by Dr. Steven Passmore and Dr. Gerald Olin – who brought everyone on an excellent adventure through their chiropractic careers!
At the conclusion of the webinars, our two virtual halls opened: Exhibit Hall, which hosted the sponsors, vendors, and associations, and our Chiropractic Hall, which offered upcoming opportunities for our students.
Multiple vendors told us that they enjoyed the convenience of the conference and appreciated the easy access to other vendors and participants, particularly those they would not have been able to connect with, had travel been necessary. There was an additional benefit to the virtual environment in that registrants are able to revisit the conference until early May.
Thank you to each of our sponsors, vendors, chiropractors, and attendees for your patience and support as we adapted to the new virtual event platform.
Special thank you to our sponsors who stuck with us this year and the new ones who joined us: Title Sponsor: Ontario Chiropractic Association, Keynote Sponsor: Canadian Chiropractic Association, Silver Sponsors: Divine Spine, Massage Addict, and Bronze Sponsor: Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors
